Water and bronchitis and pneumonia

1 |
"Ahem."

That's an understatement for those inflicted with bronchitis. This obstructive pulmonary condition, best known for the heavy coughing accompanied my sputum, occurs when the bronchi in the lungs are inflamed. Bronchitis can be acute, or short term as well as chronic, or long-lasting. People who smoke or live in polluted cities are more susceptible to coming down with this ailment.

  1. Acute bronchitis usually comes on quickly and gets better after 2 to 3 weeks. The majority of people who get acute bronchitis get better on their own without any problems.
  2. Chronic bronchitis keeps coming back and can last a very long time, especially for those who smoke. Chronic bronchitis means you have a cough with mucus most days of the month for 3 months of the year for at least 2 years in a row.

The more common of the two is acute. Bronchitis is usually caused by a virus which people can catch from a variety of places, and it can also develop out of the flu and upper respiratory infections. Sometimes the cause may be bacteria. (This can come into play in figuring out what medicine to take!) Basically, when the bronchial tubes become inflamed they form mucus. This creates the coughing reflex, which produces more mucus and this makes you cough more. Acute bronchitis can also be caused by breathing in things that irritate the bronchial tubes, such as smoke and food particles. Bronchitis is contagious and can be passed along to others the same way colds and viruses are. An infected person coughs, spraying viral particles in the air, where it can be inhaled in by others or onto their hands, where they can be picked up when the person shakes hands with others.
